Science Circus

Mitchell Physics Lecture Halls 203-205 (2nd Floor)


Rhys Thomas teaches Newtonian physics using a rare blend of science, comedy and circus arts. Students learn surprising things about gravity through bowling ball juggling, gyroscopic stability through glass bowl spinning, centripetal force with cowboy lariats, center of balance with a six-foot tall unicycle and inertia with the old tablecloth pull. Add the irresistible force of levity to even more tricks and you’ve got a rough idea of what the Science Circus is all about.
